@Rangeri see this as the next destination :D .. how difficult is the terrain overall? During my Spiti trip i found driving post 9pm towards reckong peo to be the toughest and post sunset at Hikkim/Koumik... When you were describing the roads my brain was remembering these roads ...

So you took Mirik route only to go towards Nepal is it?

What was total km covered?

Duster got new tyres before the trip (they look fresh :) ).

How commercial is sikkim compared to shimla and manali (not the spiti valley)?

I would say, it is better than Spiti valley. 
But the problem is timing, In December this terrain is difficult compared to Spiti (in summer, Monsoon)
4x4 with snow chains is a must in December.

NE is opposite to commercial.

My next trip would be somewhere around Arunachal Pradesh. 
At least in December, very few tourists. 
Our car is the only self drive car. Most of them are cabs, very limited in number.

      Hi,
       
      I have to travel from Hyderabad to Bhopal next week via Nagpur and Betul with my family. I am planning on covering the entire stretch in a day.
       
      I am specially concerned about the security of the entire stretch during this pandemic, particularly Betul to Bhopal part.
       
      Also, do I need to get pass for the travel? Now that inter-state movements are allowed, as per the authorities here at Hyderabad we don’t need any passes anymore. However, will get it if required
       
      Any advice will be very helpful.
       
      Thanks,
      Saurabh

      Hello everyone,

      We [2 brothers, only 1 knows driving] are planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Kolkata in the coming weekends. Hyundai i20 Sports.

      This would our first long road trip crossing 2 complete states. We are a bit concerned about the road conditions, how safe & secure the entire stretch of road is, any points of concern, or to be noted?

      We plan to go in 4-hour drive <> 1-hour rest and halt at nights at safe & secure places. Considering COVID19, we plan to rest in the vehicle.

      We would be packing light food & snacks & water for the entire trip.

      Requesting this humble community to advice on
      1. Where would we reach with our 4:1 hour drive plan
      2. Any safe & secure place to halt the night around that location
      3. Any additional points of advice/caution
       
      Regards,
      Shyam
